  • Patent number: 8894382
    Abstract: A handheld blower apparatus includes a housing (2), an axial blower (6) which conveys air through a blower tube (7), and an electric drive motor (4). The drive motor (4) has a rotor (22) and a stator (21) and rotatably drives a drive shaft (16) and at least one fan wheel (23) of the axial blower (6). A simple construction results when the drive shaft (16) is rotatably mounted in the housing (2), when the rotor (22) of the drive motor (4) is connected to the drive shaft (16) in a rotatably fixed manner and the stator (21) of the drive motor (4) is rotatably mounted on the drive shaft (16). The stator (21) is supported relative to the housing (2) to prevent rotation and can tilt in a limited manner relative to the housing (2).

  • Publication number: 20140165411
    Abstract: Electrical shears have a housing with an electric drive motor arranged in the housing. A motor shaft is connected to the drive motor. Blades are provided and at least one of the blades is connected to the motor shaft. The motor shaft acts on the at least one blade for opening or closing the blades. A manual actuating member with a guide member is guided in a translatory motion, wherein the guide member has a length extending in a direction of a straight actuating travel path of the manual actuating member. A control unit is provided that controls the drive motor as a function of an electric control signal, wherein the electric control signal represents a mechanical position of the manual actuating member.

  • Patent number: 8742703
    Abstract: The invention relates to a blower apparatus (1) having a blower wheel (4) for generating a blower air flow (50). The blower wheel (4) is arranged in a housing (2), wherein the blower wheel is driven by an electric drive motor (8). A blower tube (6) via which the generated blower air flow (50) is guided connects at an outlet (5). A control unit (17) is provided for controlling the rotational speed of the electric drive motor. For a quick reduction of the blower air flow (50), it is provided that the control unit (17) supports the deceleration of the drive motor (8) through a braking current (I).

  • Patent number: 8004129
    Abstract: The aim is to avoid damaging lubricating-film discharges occurring via bearings (WL) in electrical machines. For this reason, provision is made for a current to be forced to flow through the bearing (WL) specifically, with the aid of a current source (IQ). The current then flows from one of the two bearing components via the lubricating film to the other bearing component. Alternating currents are particularly suitable since the lubricating film is conductive, so that the capacitance defined by the lubricating film cannot be charged, or can be charged only slightly.

  • Patent number: 5377942
    Abstract: According to an illustrative example of the invention, a chair column comprises a base tube with a support plate. A gas spring is accommodated within the base tube. The piston rod of the gas spring is supported on the base tube by a ball bearing. The cylinder of the gas spring is guided at the upper end of the base tube by a guiding sleeve. The guiding sleeve is telescopical with respect to the base tube in response to outward and inward movement of the cylinder with respect to the base tube such that a full satisfactory guiding function is maintained between the cylinder and the base tube, even when the cylinder is in its uppermost position.
